Whizzy, wondrous and wildly funny, “Guardians” is the first Marvel release that rightly could be called a comedy. But notwithstanding the talking tree and the gun-toting raccoon, it’s so much more than a spoof of space operas or a freeze-ray aimed at doleful competitor DC Comics. The maestro is Missourian James Gunn, whose previous movies were modest-budget exercises in body horror (“Slither”) and superhero psychoanalysis (“Super”). but given a bottomless pot of Marvel’s gold, he has built a vehicle that can accommodate fanboys and families alike, with room in the back seat for a big, beating heart. On a technical level, it’s astonishing, with World of Tomorrow cityscapes and pop-flavored 3-D imagery that demand to be seen on a big screen. On a storytelling level, it’s a back-to-the-future flashback to the misfit crew of the Millennium Falcon, with a ’70s soundtrack transporting us to a mallplex far, far away. The AM-radio hits are on a cassette inherited by an earthling named Peter Quill when his mother dies in 1988. At the end of that Spielbergian prelude, the grieving boy is levitated from outer-ring St. Louis to outer space, where he becomes an...

Cute, stylish clock, however, it simply won't keep time, is very noisy and the hands keep falling off! The eyes open and close and the tail moves back and forth, however, these mechanisms are so noisy that there's no way the average person could stand listening to it for more than a few moments. The clock loses time constantly and is no way accurate. When it arrived, one of the hands had fallen off in shipping and won't stay on the clock at all. I walk by and find the hand laying on the...
